Irven DeVore, professor of Anthropology will probably be forced to cancel his fall term lecturing schedule because of a recurring heart ailment, a source close to DeVore said yesterday.
The source said DeVore is currently recuperating at home from "some heart problems" other than a heart attack. DeVore was hospitalized last spring for a heart attack and has just spent nearly two weeks in a local hospital.
Robert L. Trivers 65, associate professor of Biology and DeVore's lecturing partner in Natural Sciences 4, "Natural Selection and Behavioral Biology," said yesterday that DeVore had been scheduled to deliver approximately one-fourth of the lectures in the course this fall, and three-fourths in the spring.
"I assume he won't be returning this semester," Trivers said. "What he will do in the spring is a decision that he is in the process on king now."
